Hair be gone

As you know if you read ModBlog, we're over the hump on this insane rollercoaster of server problems, part man-made and part “act-of-God” (screw you Allah, this was really not a good time for this). It's been a stressful day for everyone, with unexpected hurdles (and the sheer size of the BME filesystems), most of them survived due to Rachel's clear head and hard work.

Other than that, today I started worked on a Jabber/IM interface for IAM today that would have two core purposes. First (and primarily), it would act as an administrative tool that would send you a message on Google Talk (or AIM, ICQ, SMS, and other messaging platforms) when buddies update, you get messages, and so on. Second, I'm working to see if I can build a full gateway, which would allow two-way communication with IAM via instant messaging client.

I've also been working on some moblogging software for Rachel as a thank you for all her efforts (ok, I admit, I'd build it for her just because I love her, work or no work). It's a really simple application that will run both on client computers or right on the server that listens for picture emails from your cellphone, and then downloads them and posts them to your website in a simple gallery format. I know there are already tools out there that can do this, but this one will be ultra-clean, and I think in part Rachel is humoring me because she knows it makes me happy to make toys for her.

Oh yeah, and I shaved. Still look kind of haggard and you can see some missed hairs (I didn't have a shaver so I just used a blade). Let's see what else… As far as I can tell, I forgot my only pair of shoes in Rachel's truck which is parked in Cabo right now. But I'm kind of a Shoeless Joe Jackson character anyway, scandal and all… Stay tuned for that. I'd tell you when it's coming, but I don't know yet.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
